Experience New Hampshire by the Glass

Travelers have been attracted to New Hampshire, or the Granite State as it’s often known, since the 1800s. Even back then finding a good, local beer was a cinch (thanks to Frank Jones and his contemporaries). Today’s NH beer scene thrives with a bumper crop of new breweries and beer bars amid the state’s established brew houses. So, whether it’s a slopeside imperial pint, a nano-brewery taster, or samples at a crowded brewfest, working NH beer into your next visit is a no-brainer. Here are just a few ideas for you – and your designated driver.

New Hampshire is awesome

When talking about New Hampshire, people often say we “have it all.” We’re close to the mountains, the ocean, a multitude of lakes, metropolitan areas, beautiful and varied four seasons, and in recent years, breweries of all sizes! New Hampshire has great accolades in terms of health, safety, low taxes, personal income, and livability, and quality of life is often cited as a top reason people both visit and choose to live here.

New Hampshire has six distinct regions, each with their own vibe and offerings and all worth checking out: Great North Woods, White Mountains, Lakes Region, Dartmouth/Lake Sunapee, Monadnock Region, Merrimack Valley, and the Seacoast.

Beyond Brewing NH 

In addition to its great brewing community, New Hampshire is known for its outdoor recreational opportunities such as rock climbing, hiking, swimming, biking, boating, camping, fishing, golfing, skiing; as well as its cultural activities including historical sites, museums, art galleries, musical entertainment, theatre; and other happenings in sports, shopping, and a plethora of restaurants.
